I've been cooking for at least 40 years. I enjoy my Lord, being in Bible college, working in children's ministry, practicing hospitality and swimming.
My favorite things to cook
Certainly Italian (from my heritage), Mexican, Cajun, good ole American roasts, potato salad and such, turkey dinners, well, I just Luv2cook!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas, Thanksgiving, birthday parties, national holidays, anything but Mother's Day :-)
My cooking triumphs
I've cooked for reunions, wedding receptions, funerals, Intl students, co-workers, neighbors, lots of family gatherings and many friends. Some of my guest's favorites are King Ranch Chicken SALAD, Veal or Eggplant Parmesan, Broiled Tilapia (variation from this site), enchiladas, Gluten & sugar-free carrot cake (from scratch) & the easy dump cakes (from this site).
My cooking tragedies
When I was still a teen and while babysitting my nephews I cooked fried chicken for dinner. I laid my fingers in the hot grease while trying to place a piece of chicken into the pan and they fried instantly. It was very painful!
